- An algebraic system in which variables can have only one of two values, such as 0 or 1, or true or false, and whose
__primary__ operations are AND, __OR__, and NOT, analogous to the way ADD, SUBTRACT, MULTIPLY, and DIVIDE are the primary operations of arithmetic. There are various permutations on the primary operations, such as NAND and __XOR__. Boolean algebra serves as the foundation for digital logic.
